    I know this isn't the NFL but it's not like we have an AAFL section. This is an upstart football league and I don't know much about it. I know that there is a team in Houston, so I have some one to root for and I know that there is a team in Tennessee, so I have some one to root against. If you will notice the e-mail says they will be having their draft this month. Seems to me they would have it after the NFL to try to get some leftovers. Any way I figured I would post it for any who are interested. Move the post if you feel there is a need to.

    I miss the XFL. Actually, miss the USFL too.

    The XFL sucked.

    The USFL however, was the bomb. As you can see from my avatar, I was a big Gamblers fan.

    I still have my Gamblers baseball hat, some programs from the games, and a bunch of ticket stubs.

    This new football league looks like it might be interesting. At least it's football in some form until the real stuff starts and we got a team to cheer for.

    Agree, XFL wasn't the top faves - but when there's no football, sometimes any football will do.

    The do not have an "official" name yet. They are going to let the fans decide on the name and mascot.

    I was listening to an interview with Dave Harbison earlier today (Late of KILT, and the new PR Director for Team Texas), and he said that while they may have a mascot (which he described as somebody in a costume who'll be at the games), they will definitely stick with "Team Texas", and nothing more.
